The Artist in his own words:

“Life etches itself on to our appearance through a posture, a glance, or perhaps a well placed wrinkle. These outward signs can point to who we are or how life has molded us in to what we have become. The grandeur of our spirit or lack thereof can be exposed by the way a person carries himself in relation to other people and his surroundings. My work attempts to capture this theatre.

To maneuver through the joy and challenge of my own life, I draw and paint stories that remind me who I am and where my feet are planted. These paintings and drawings are part of a process rather than a defining statement. Some of the imagery comes from dreams, stories I have heard, or read, or concoct, and occasionally from observed life. I paint and draw and sculpt as a means of working through that which otherwise would have no voice, to get my arms around subjects which other than through metaphor and image making would have no means of expression. My work is mostly a whisper not a shout”. Malcolm Moran
